This is news that could easily send the dance world in mourn. LMFAO is splitting for some time, as Redfoo and SkyBlu are starting individual projects.
Yes, unfortunately this is now the sort of news in the category “rumor has it”. LMFAO has broken up, but at least it’s not forever. LMFAO are just taking a break to do what feels natural. Meaning both Redfoo and SkyBlu, the uncle-nephew duo, are looking forward to start their very own musical projects.
It happened before, this is not the first time a beloved party rocking crew is calling it quits. Well, at least for a while. But we saw it before: either they will never get back together or they’ll do it like years from now. For the moment being, the only good news is that at least we’ll get two kinds of LMFAO, so party rocking remains their business.
“I feel like we’ve been doing this for so long, five or six years” said Redfoo earlier this week about the decision to break up LMFAO. “And we’re kind of like saying, well, let’s just do what’s natural and just kind of explore that, instead of like forcing it all the time” he added.
Of his solo project, Redfoo revealed, much like you’d expect, it’s “always going to be LMFAO-ish”. He says he’s been working on his solo material for a while now. “I was really passionate about bringing party music to the world, so I will always be making some kind of party music” he added.
Truth be told, Redfoo’s solo career is pretty hectic. He has a gig for the New England Patriots to write a song, while the U.S. women’s gymnastics team booked Redfoo on several dates for their gold-medal victory tour. Plus, he’s even a tennis coach.
“I think that we naturally just started hanging with two different sets of people, two different crows, but we’re always family” says Redfoo of LMFAO splitting. “He’ll always be my nephew, I’ll always be his uncle” he added.
It looks like rumors got confirmed. Earlier this year, just before the “Sorry for Party Rocking” tour, Sky Blu faced the media about reports that LMFAO was calling it quits. “It’s completely false. We’re family at the end of the day. Blood is stronger than anything” said Sky Blu back then.
